I'd just like to say that I've been in college for about a week. I haven't worn foundation at all, and I feel great. This is the literally the first time in my life I've gone without makeup.

 

I still break out, but I'm able to do things without thinking about my make up. I can show my face without being so self conscious. I basically started a new life...

 

Thanks everyone smile.png

 

Also, college helps you not pick at your face. You're way too busy, and things just heal naturally!

Yeah I mean, that's what I've been doing this summer. When I went swimming in July, I hardly had any acne, but now it's back again because I started working after vacation, thus wearing foundation again and starting the cycle. For a week and a half, I've been off of work to prepare for college so I've worn less makeup. I'm getting there, but I just wish I had a couple more weeks.


In Topic: Why Do People Stare?

D: I understand. I wear makeup, and although my acne isn't as bad as it could be, I'm always scared that without my makeup I will be treated differently/stared at.

 

I work at a fast food place, and there's a lot of people who order that are teens/adults that have acne. I always try to make a point to look in their eyes. I hate when you're talking to someone, and you can see their eyes shifting all over your face.

 

Sometimes, though, the customer doesn't make eye contact with me because they are embarrassed. I wish they knew I can totally relate. When I see someone with really severe acne, particularly a girl my age without makeup, I envy her confidence because I can't even go out without makeup.
